So I looked around online to find further info on Orbis and Durango. And it was there I stumble upong NowGamer. Apparently the internet is still littered with fanboy idiocy. I've not seen the site before, but fuck me, what a load of bollocks. Some "Durango insider" saying stuff like te Durango has...

Eurogamer have a good article up today, expanding on the VG247 info from a few days back and pulling together info from other online sources, and linking it in with some "insider knowledge" they've been told. So right now, both PS4 / Orbis and XBox720 / Durango have very similar AMD CPU's - 8...

The Walking Dead S1 Ep3

Thu 17th Jan, 2013 by Matt
Some first person shooter action! Kinda. Headshots have never been easier, lol. More twists and turns. Stuff happening you think wouldn't. Difficult to discuss without spoilers, but I'll do my best. Something happens in Ep 3.... a highly emotional scenario. Fucking horrible situation to find...

Wed 16th Jan, 2013 by Matt
I'm enjoying this episodic gaming. 2 hours and you've completed the whole chapter. It's a manageable amount of time for a working adult, you can commit to one evening knowing approximately how long you'll need to spend. Episode 2's story was a little too obvious. Nothing we've not seen in other End...

Sun 13th Jan, 2013 by Matt
Batman complete, it's time to move onto the Steam queue. Next title, and one I've been really keen to get starting, is The Walking Dead. I'd heard a bit about this over the last year, but I was unsure what it was. Episodic, great reviews, won a load of Game Of The Year awards, apparently has a good...

PC Sound

Sun 13th Jan, 2013 by Matt
I've found myself quite uninspired by the PC sound recently. Trouble balancing VOIP with the game effects; lack of oomph in general. The sound was "muddy", for lack of a better word. My amp isn't particularly good, and I suspect the headphone output on it is low quality; I'm not even sure it's...

Wed 9th Jan, 2013 by Matt
And we're done! A somewhat sloppy end when ClayFace appears (thanks John!) and you have to do a daft boss battle, always the bane of games. Pun intended. So all in all, I really enjoyed this. It's the first single player title I've played through in a while. There's loads more to do, and I spent a...

Spoke to John earlier. "Really, I can't remember playing as Catwoman again." Wine has addled his brain. "Have you thought Clay-Face yet?" Thanks man, spoiler ahoy Got some good game time in tonight, like an entire hour! Catwoman, walking round like a fanboys wet dream. I know the character is...

Straight in tonight. Looks like I need to reboot my PC before trying anything Game For Windows, regardless. Even then it may not work, so another reboot can be required. Or 3.... Back to a previous location to get the Joker. It's a nice little trek, involving some stealth. I'm still having problems...

FUCK YOU GAMES FOR WINDOWS FUCK YOU! Tonight was mostly spent waiting to play the game. I only had an hour. I'd open the game, Games For Windows would go to connect the server and that's it. 5 frames per second at most. Fucking torrid. I know it's GFW because if I block it on the firewall, I have...

Steam Xmas - Final Tally

Sat 5th Jan, 2013 by Matt
It's over. Steam Xmas Sales. Actually they are still going, but now it's just the second (or fifth) chance to buy the most popular titles. Nothing new will appear, so the temptation is over. Phew The final tally wasn't too bad, all things being equal. Amnesia: The Dark Descent Bastion Jamestown...

Ra's al Ghul. Oddly, pronounced differently than in the movie. Some kind of Trials, flying through a hallucinogenic world. Impressive use of Physx if the framerate did drop a lot. Enjoy the battles with 20 odd enemies on the screen, especially when they all jump on you and there's that Matrix...

The Penguin! Truth be told this isn't making all that much sense. The Joker poisons me so I have no option but to find a cure for him. Mr Freeze is being held by the Penguin, yet Joker's guys are there trying to kill me to.... what exactly? Stop me getting the cure? Doesn't make any sense at all....

Not sure how much progress I'm making in this game. I keep getting sidetracked, which is kinda of fun. And sometimes you just have to glidekick someone when you're really trying to get somewhere else. So the Joker is poisoned and has poisoned me. It's one of those sequences that doesn't quite make...

  A while back, on a game site forum, I got in a "discussion" with a user about Left 4 Dead. As is worryingly typical for the internet, it was more an argument that an discussion where some idiot (not me!) mistakes Fact for Opinion and shows such a lack of intellect you have to worry about the...

This 25 character title limit is playing havoc with my alliteration Did everyone get what games they wanted this Xmas? Like most adults I'd bought my own presents and the missus happily wrapped them. I'd picked up some titles at a recent Blockbuster sale and grabbed an additional title in the week...

I don't like switching characters in games. I don't like the way it takes me from one character who [hopefully] I've grown somewhat attached to, and made to play as someone else. I've never liked it in any game, ever. So make me Batman, then take that away.... how dare you! Switching to Catwoman...

Having sat on it for a while, I've finally downloaded and installed Batman Arkham City via Steam. Hours 0 -1 Fuck me I'm BATMAN! Fuck yeah. I jump and glide and punch the shit out of bad guys. Looks super slick; 1920x1080, anti aliasing, DX11 features on Medium, getting a fantastic framerate. Could...

Merry fucking Xmas you fuckers! Well I stumbled upon this image. Made me laugh! I've got the old calendar kicking around somewhere, have to get that scanned in. Maybe next year, lol. Looking forward to some Xmas gaming and especially some Unreal Xmas Fun. Been too long since we done that.

Playstation Plus

Thu 20th Dec, 2012 by Matt
I know more than a few people who are negative about Playstation Plus. Some people call it a rental system (it kind of is), and make snide remarks about never owning the games you're "paying for" with your subscription. These same people always own an XBox 360 and the irony that they're paying a...
